Schechtl shears are the leading architectural shears in the industry because they were smartly designed from decades of sheet metal experience. They feature a deeper back-gauge of 30″ (instead of 24″), a roll out wagon so you don’t have to unload the machine from your knees, and telescoping front support arms.
The MSB is motor driven plate shear designed heavier gauge cutting than the SMT, up to 14 gauge. Choose from models with cutting lengths of 40″, 60″, 80″ and 122″.
Handling is simple: Put the metal sheet onto the table, push it between the cutting bars and start the process with the foot switch – that’s all.
The machine frame is a sturdy welded steel design. The cutting bar is driven by a noiseless gear motor. All bearings and guide ways are maintenance-free.
On each side of the cutting table there are rectangular gauges with a scale of 400 mm (stainless steel). During the cut, a mechanical hold-down bar with non-skid ebonite lining holds the part.
The support bar in front of the machine enlarges the area of support to 920 mm (36″).
Like other sheet metal machines sold by MetalForming, the Schechtl SMB and other shears can be networked together with MetalForming’s exclusive CIRM (Computer Integrated Roof Manufacturing) system. Through a web-based interface, CIRM helps organizes and assign cutting, shearing, folding and rollforming jobs to increase production, efficiency and profit throughout your operation, whether you are a roofing contractor or a metal components manufacturer.
